The Silent Ballet: Volume 1

Summer 2006

This compilation was compiled by the Lost Children net label and The Silent Ballet, a webzine that has been in the works for quite some time. The Silent Ballet is a webzine that will focus upon instrumental and postrock artists, as well the artists that catch our attention from other genres. Its main goal is to create a stronger instrumental community across the world and to function as a portal that actively brings musicians and listeners into an open discussion. This compilation is a means to formally announce to the world the conception of The Silent Ballet. Expect it to open its doors in full functionality in Fall of 2006, if not sooner, and look to the webpage for more information as the date approaches.
The Lost Children net label seeks to distribute music created by artists with humble budgets to all corners of the globe. The cost to the audience is, of course, nothing. Lost Children does not believe that in today's technological world an artist should be unable to deliver his music to a willing listener just because he does not have suffcient label representation. Music is a joy in all of our lives and no one should be deprived of it.
The meeting of these two forces resulted in a compilation of artists pushing the instrumental and independent scenes in new and creative ways. A big thanks goes out to all the bands and labels involved in this compilations; everyone's effort is greatly appreciated.

About the Artist
Trevor Johnson is a young inspiriting artist, handling both the digital and physical realms. Although he is greatly inspired by the artistic world and has a passionate drive to create art, he is often brought down to earth by very real monetary constraints. He was generous enough to donate this work of art to The Silent Ballet, and for that we are most grateful.
Those interested in contacting Trevor for other projects should do so at

A Note from the Artist
This is a present for you. I made it. I think it looks cool. I think it looks post-rocky. I also think it has the mood of an album, which seeks to introduce listeners to new, and perhaps exciting, music. It has many colors. Please actively criticize it, for without such constructive commentary I might never achieve artistic perfection. Yet I also warn to be gentle, due to my always fragile ego.
T. Arthur. Johnson

Subject: Configuration of Sleeping Fire
This compilation is irrestible. It is a chronicle of victory spoken by a silent reader whose emotions are large and resonant so much so that they ripple outward the glory of triumph.

The tracks together are pieces of ascendance, and each one catapults the listener into a soundscape of of emotional history. This kind of narration is made possible because of the artful assembling of the tracks, it almost feels like it is a single artist who invisioned a massive saga that was to tell the history of human emotions; there is madness, and pride, fragility, and love to be heard here and above all there is beauty.

In short it is a critical hit from every angle, save subtlety; a mixture of glacial liquid and all manner of flammable materials not to be missed.
